Newton Mearns skiing sensation Owen Vinter dominated the British Alpine Championships in Tignes, France, last week.

The 17-year-old skied sensationally throughout the week and was crowned the men’s overall champion, winning both the Fedden Cup and the Spence Cup as the highest-scoring under-18 competitor at the Championships.

Vinter once again featured heavily on the British National Championship’s podium.

The talented teen, who trains at Glasgow Ski & Snowboard Centre in Bellahouston Park, has won his national championship title several times previously.

Vinter has expressed his gratitude to those who have supported him on his remarkable sporting journey, including Pinnacle Sports Group, Rossignol UK, Glasgow Ski Racing and Ambition Racing.

A fully-qualified instructor and race coach, Vinter is passionate about winter sports and is always looking for support from local businesses who think he can offer something back to the community.

Since leaving Mearns Castle High School with five Highers, the youngster has trained full-time with Marc Telling at Ambition Racing in Austria and, after a well-earned rest, will restart his summer training in preparation for next season, where he aims to climb the world rankings and gain selection to the World Junior Championships in 2020.
